I agree but what I mean it that it will become really hard
to help users for which it won't work.

Right but different versions of Apache and different
installation of Apache may not use the same concept behind
the same variable. As I stated before ISP often like to modify
some of the environment variables for example. That's a real
problem IMHO.

I cant agree this, sorry. We should at least put something in
else we will face again bugs with cookies and with the "UPDATE"
and "INSERT" statements.

I prefer this solution but that's not enough IMHO. If you
really want to have a default value for this setting, use the
first example from the documentation since we can hope at least
three of variable used are always defined the way they should
($HTTPS, $HTTP_HOST and $PHP_SELF).... but that will means
array and maybe even use the "getenv()" function to get these
values whatever is the "register_globals" position.
